First Cut Beef Brisket



A Beef Brisket is usually cut for retail sale into two parts, "First Cut" and "Front Cut."

Some people consider the part called "First Cut" better, because it is leaner than the "Front Cut" portion. The downside, however, is that as it has so little fat, it can cook up dry and without as much flavour as the "Front Cut."

Cooking Tips

Without the fat that the "Front Cut" has to keep it moist, "First Cut" should be braised or stewed.

Please share this information with your friends. They may love it.

    What on earth is so special about the 24th of April that on this day of all others you are supposed to have eat a Pig In a Blanket? Whoever sat at their keyboard sometime in the 1990s and invented all these holidays, must have just randomly assigned some as filler. Oh well, at any rate, this is as good a day as any to challenge all your preconceptions about Pigs-In-A-Blanket.
